BlueSteps recently hosted an #ExecCareer Chat on the topic of executive job search strategies, featuring Per André Marum, from Panamera Executive Search, Kimberly Sernel, from BlueSteps Executive Career Services, and Sally Stetson, from Salveson Stetson.

Some of the questions asked included:

  • Does the executive job market seem to be improving? Is now a good time to transition?
  • What can executives in-transition do to attract new opportunities?
  • Should I consider career coaching if I’m in transition or is that best for currently employed executives?
  • Should I seek out interim or temporary roles while trying to land a full-time executive role?
  • How can I leverage social media for job search?
  • How can I leverage networking in my job search?
  • When should I bring up any background info that may be seen as negative? During interview? Cover letter? Later?
  • Why are many executives often unprepared for a period of transition?


If you missed it, catch up on all the excellent advice that was given in the Storify transcript below.
